Anyone realised how dubstep has exploded in popularity in the past year, when i started listening is was all underground and was never played in daytime radio, now i hear dubstep on radio 1 in the UK, and also its getting very popular on youtube.
Does anyone think that dubstep will start getting liquidated to suit the mainstream taste now its being recognised more?

To be fair it's taken dubstep about 8-9 years to get really popular although admittedly, the early stuff (Horsepower Productions, El-B etc.) isn't all that similar to the half-speed dubstep sound of recent years, although of course there are exceptions to the rule (Burial, Joy Orbison, Darkstar etc.)

Jungle / drum & bass was assimilated into the mainstream way earlier in its lifetime than this; I've not heard any piss-poor commercialised dubstep appearing yet so I think the scene's safe for now...
